Pose of the Month - Eagle Pose

When we consider "freedom" we often think of it as an outer experience, being able to move freely in the external world. And though that is one avenue of freedom, the yogi also experiences freedom internally. Eagle pose or Garudasana requires the practitioner to move the energy of the body inward in a complicated, twisted shape in the effort to experience freedom. Read More

Pose of the Month - Reclined Bound Angle Pose

The practice of ahimsa asks us to pay close attention to the relationship we have with ourselves and others. One way in which we can begin that inquiry is through stillness.

Pose of the Month - Ksepana Mudra

As the seasons change, we find the urge to move inward and let go of our old patterns so that we can clear the path. We often consider ways to break patterns and habits in our asana practice. But we tend to repeat the same cycles within our habits of meditation and mudra. Read More
